Going: Kids, Youth and Local community
We live with the conviction that God loves people, and that we can radiate his light and love in our local communities as well as in communities around the world through strategic partnerships.
Little Stars South Parent & Toddler Group / Little Stars Parent & Toddler Group
Little Stars South is held for parents, carers and pre-school children on Tuesdays during term time from 10.00 to 12.00am at our South Site
Little Stars is held for parents, carers and pre-school children on Wednesdays during term time from 10.00 to 11.30am at our Central Site
Each group provides an ideal space for the children with activities and space for children to ‘let off steam’ with a range of age appropriate toys and activities. Every week there is a story time or a time of singing with the children including songs with a simple faith basis.
Our aim is to provide a welcoming, safe and supportive environment for adults to relax whilst meeting new people and for children to play and make new friends.
During the session there is plenty of tea, coffee and there is also a snack time for the children.
All our team are Christians, and as they are keen to support children and parents and carers they also include a simple prayer as part of the sessions and are available to pray with people should they request this.

CAP Life Skills
Life Skills is a friendly group that gives people the confidence and decision making skills they need to survive life on a low income. Over 8 weeks we teach people practical money saving techniques, such as cooking on a budget, living healthily on less, and making your money go further.
Everyone finds dealing with the pressures of life a stressful and lonely challenging at times. That’s why CAP Life Skills is designed to be a fun and relaxed place where you’ll meet other people in similar situations, who understand you and can encourage you. More details of the course can be found here: https://capuk.org/i-want-help/our-services/cap-life-skills/introduction
Recognising that people are individually gifted and inspired, we are keen to bring together people who share interests in particular areas of life and community. As a result we are forming groups that focus in on a specific area of life in our community (e.g. our local neighbourhoods, homelessness).
Whether part of a formal group or not, we believe that our workplaces, homes, schools, and neighbourhoods can become places of transformation as we love and serve these communities.
People from TWCF are involved in serving in many aspects of the local community in addition to their employment, below is a sample of some of these:
- Street Pastors & Prayer Pastors
- Churches Winter Shelter
- Street Teams
